Watermelon?

dcarch7August 16, 2013

Watermelon rind is discussed in another thread.

Besides pickling, and used in salads, watermelon rind is so delicious baked or saut�ed.

Sous vided pork chop on watermelon rind.

Then, you have watermelon radish, which is just radish that is watermelon red. Sous vided dry sea scallops on couscous and watermelon radish.

dcarch, your watermelon grid w/ purslane looks gorgeous! I'm curious how you prepared that watermelon -- and wondering whether you ate it or just made it to look pretty. :) Looks like it was torched or broiled to give it some caramelization.

That watermelon is the most creative presentation I've seen in a long time. I don't want to eat it - I just want to look at it! :-)

Oh, yum! Thank you! I told my family that melon rinds could be used for cooking: they are eager to taste!

Thanks Party Music. The watermelon rind can be cooked in a number of ways, roast, grill, stir fry, etc. In this case, it was sautéed on a cast iron skillet. Yes, it does look pretty, very dramatic on a plate, but I enjoy it because it is delicious.

Thanks Teresa. I have to keep eating it because I bought 3 large watermelons when they were on sale last week at $3.99 each.

Thanks Linnea. I think you can find many recipes on the Internet for cooking with watermelon rind.

As always, I am surprised and amazed at your artistry. All the elements come together in a way I never would have thought of, yet seems just right.
